THE ARTS+/B3 The Future of Culture Festival

THE ARTS+ brings some of the most innovative thinkers and practitioners from around the world together to explore, debate and shape the future of culture and creativity in the digital age. A fair, exhibition and interdisciplinary festival at once, it is a vibrant platform that showcases the potential of digitization and new technologies for the cultural and creative industries while fostering cross-sectoral collaboration.

In 2019, the festival’s explorations into the intersections of art, culture and technology will be taken even further than in previous editions: Collaborating for the first time with the B3 Biennial of the Moving Image, the ARTS+ will be extended by the renowned B3 flagship exhibition featuring film, media, games and tech-based installation art, and by a new themed strand in the curated program.
